Yet again the use of present tense of ‘it is’ tells us that he has made his mind up about the murder. The words ‘bloody business’ contain a sinister undertone due to the alliteration of plosive sounds, additionally the use of ‘bloody’ creates allusions about death which shows that his mind is already corrupted with wicked thoughts. This quote is followed by “Nature seems dead, and wicked dreams abuse curtained sleep”, illustrating Macbeth’s paranoia and rather haunted thoughts. ‘Nature seems dead’ represents how ‘nature’ is disagreeing with Macbeth’s plans of throwing the chain of being into chaos, there may also be a ‘double entendre’ here, Shakespeare may be suggesting that human nature even seems dead, that even the idea of killing for greed of power is against human nature. Business.
I think for this movie; his goal was to show that everyone has a bad side to them. It cannot be helped; humans are programmed to have a dark side. The director was liked and had a seemingly happy life but by the end of the story we saw how that is not the case. The director also had a twisted mindset and was not the saint people saw him to be. Director Park Chan Wook did a really get job getting this message across because after seeing it the audience got a a clear grasp of the moral of the
The brilliance of the art isn’t in how magnificent it looks but more so in how the distorted buildings and objects make us challenge our own preconceived perception of reality. This was a huge theme in the movie as we realize at the end of the film that Francis is a crazy man and the entire frame was of his delusion with reality accusing Dr. Caligari to be a murderer when in fact he was the Insane Asylums Chief Medical Director of which Francis was a patient. This twist at the end of the film was meant to express that we are all biased to believe one perspective of reality (as we believed Francis until we discovered the truth), and that there are so many interpretation of reality we don’t appreciate or acknowledge. The expressionism cinema was meant as a rejection of reality/natural aesthetic. It’s aim was to defamiliarise the conventional vision and constructions we allow ourselves to adopt
“It was just him I couldn’t stand,” Dill said. […] It was the way he said it made me sick, plain sick…”, rather than doing something rash, he complained and expressed his feelings about the issue at hand (265-266).

Sure, the tale involves scoundrels, gold, poison, greed, and death, but there are simply just not as many qualities of a sensational story. The Pardoner very hastily told the story, keeping it short and sweet. The knight, however, drug out his story, keeping the listener on the edge of his or her seat aching for the next detail. The Knight simply had better storytelling skills than the pardoner. Since the knight had better storytelling skills, his story appeared to the listener as more entertaining.
In the beginnings of the film, hope was spoken of like it was feared. It was spoken as though even the slight thought of it was deadly and could kill in an instant. Everyone but Andy believed that hope was simply bad news. In the film Andy brings up the subject of hope. Red instantly shoots him down by saying “Hope is a dangerous thing.
The structure set by Mr. Trier, often resorting to flashbacks, awaken my curiosity for the story, but some of the film’s sections deliberately disguise those familiar routines, typical of the genre in question, which revealed to be sparse in terms of inspiration. Here, the characters’ feelings are explicit rather than implicit, contrasting with the secrets of Isabelle and the doubts related to her death. “Louder than Bombs” is a minor film when compared with the filmmaker’s earliest works.
Raskolnikov 's act of violence is what causes him to go insane, impacts the lives of the people around him, and finally violence is Raskolnikov’s way of proving himself as an above-average individual. Dostoyevsky used violence to change the course of not only Raskolnikov’s life but also the lives of the people around him. The story shows how one man 's image of himself as a higher being can cause him to commit violent acts, which impact everyone around

Though Bartleby went out the way his character is expected to, it did not fully satisfy the readers and instead left them wanting more.

In 1954, Alfred Hitchcock released a psychological thriller titled Rear Window. The film focuses on L.B. 'Jeff' Jefferies (James Stewart) who is a broken leg, wheelchair bound photographer. And out of boredom he looks out his rear window into the rear windows of his neighbors’ apartments.
